In Bothnian Bay National Park, located in the northern Baltic Sea, visitors can learn about the area’s unique and ever changing natural features, which were formed by land uplift.

As well as varying nature, the traditional fishing bases and heritage landscapes are worth seeing. In addition there is a rich variety of birds in the area and the distinctive vegetation includes several rare or threatened plant species.

The National Park is ideal for boat trips of one to two days for experienced boaters.
